Louis Vuitton launched a collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories, called “Objets Nomades”. Louis Vuitton has followed the tradition of artistic collaborations and invited a team of established and upcoming designers to create 16 objects. The cool brazilian duo, Fernando and Humberto Campana is one of them, and also Maarten Baas, Patricia Urquiola, Nendo Oki Sato, among others.
The Campana brothers created a hanging travel cabinet made out of leather offcuts from Louis Vuitton’s workshops.
Swiss design trio Atelier Oï used long strips of leather and gold rivets to create a hammock inspired by the pinched shape of pasta ribbons.
Atelier Oï also created a folding stool with a thin sheet of aluminium between its leather exterior, allowing it to be packed flat and opened out into a sturdy seat.

French designer Christian Liagre created a portable travel desk in sycamore wood, leather and aluminium, which folds up into a small briefcase form.
